Unit YV
Name yottavolt
Category Electric Potential
Details Yoctovolt (yV) is a unit of electric potential in the International System of Units (SI). It represents a very small voltage or potential difference between two points in an electric field. One yoctovolt is equal to 10^-24 Volts. In scientific notation, it can be written as 1 yV = 1 × 10^-24 V.

The prefix "yocto" represents a factor of 10^-24, which makes it the smallest standard prefix in SI units. Due to the extremely small value of yoctovolts, it is not commonly used in everyday electrical measurements but may be encountered in specialized fields or theoretical physics where extremely small potential differences need to be quantified.
